Oh lemons, you are delicious. You make good things to drink, you spice up soup, you freshen up salad dressing and you make AMAZING ice cream.

I was inspired after making some blueberry preserves from a you pick day. I didn’t know how I was going to eat a whole jar, so I decided to make some ice cream to go with it. Vanilla is boring so lemon it was.

Its good on its on or great with blueberry topping too. Adding some melted white chocolate chips to the top too would be extra delicious. Enjoy!
